Course Description:

Becoming the Mindful Teacher: Using Mindfulness to Prevent Burnout and Boost 

Welcome to Becoming the Mindful Teacher. This course was developed to teach educators how to use mindfulness to help reduce stress and to prevent burnout. Being a teacher can be very challenging and overwhelming. Educators have the demands of students, parents, administrators and the community, along with their personal responsibilities. Decades of research suggest that mindfulness is an effective strategy to use to improve mental, emotional, and physical health. The strategies you will learn in this course will help you to reduce stress and improve your overall well being. Mindfulness is an easy, quick, and simple way to help you to boost your morale and be a happier healthier teacher and you. In addition, being a mindfulness teacher will improve your ability to connect with students, which will improve engagement and instruction. (Center for Education Policy Research, 2019)
